Faculty of Engineering Best Teaching Award -AY2021-

One aspect of faculty development at the Faculty of Engineering is the Best Teaching Award, appropriately named to recognize a faculty member in each department demonstrating superior leadership qualities and whose instruction is highly effective, or faculty member implementing devised or improved educational techniques or demonstrating outstanding educational effectiveness. The Faculty of Engineering Commendation Committee uses course standard evaluation results taken from the Faculty of Engineering Common Course Evaluation Questionnaire, which is completed by students in all common core subjects, to identify changes in scoring over the past three-year period that indicate a tangible improvement in instruction technique. Syllabus content and the like are also taken into consideration. A list of faculty members receiving the Best Teaching Award from the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Tokyo and their courses follows below.
